Jamaica and Dubai to collaborate on tourism

Tourism Minister of Jamaica Edmund Bartlett has revealed that plans are afoot to facilitate tourism cooperation between his country and Dubai.

This is following a meeting with Abdulla Al Saleh, Undersecretary of Foreign Trade and Industry in the Ministry of Economy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Both met recently at the UAE’s Ministry of Economy, which has oversight for tourism in the UAE, where they discussed areas for cooperation in tourism that will redound to the benefit of both countries and their citizens.


Minister Bartlett outlined that Dubai will support Jamaica in terms of MICE market development, logistics and technology and Jamaica will reciprocate in terms of resilience and sustainability, the building out of human capital programs, product development and marketing.


In expressing his enthusiasm at the possibilities for collaboration in cruise tourism, Minister Bartlett noted that Dubai Ports, one of the largest in the world with enormous capacity, is looking for partnerships across the world and Jamaica is a good place to start.


A key matter that was also explored during the meeting was the possibility of establishing an outpost of the Jamaica-based Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC) in the UAE. This would mark the center’s latest satellite location, adding to its offices in countries including Kenya, Jordan and Canada.


The tourism minister indicated that further discussions will be held to formalize these arrangements through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) when both countries convene alongside other nations at COP 28 this November.


The Jamaica Ministry of Tourism and its agencies are on a mission to enhance and transform Jamaica’s tourism product while ensuring that the benefits which flow from the tourism sector are increased for all Jamaicans. To this end, it has implemented policies and strategies that will provide further momentum for tourism as the engine of growth for the Jamaican economy.


The Ministry remains committed to ensuring that the tourism sector makes the fullest contribution possible to Jamaica’s economic development given its tremendous earning potential.
